Crap From The Past - February 25, 2011: Ron hosts True Brit


Published February 25, 2011


A pop music radio show for people who already know plenty about pop music, hosted by Ron "Boogiemonster" Gerber and heard every Friday night from 10:30 to midnight on KFAI-FM, 90.3 FM Minneapolis, 106.7 FM St. Paul, and KFAI.org.


Notes

Here is a listing of all shows saved to date and a listing of all the playlists to date.

This week's show was actually preempted by special programming for Black History Month, so this is the episode of KFAI's True Brit that Ron hosted, from February 11, 2001. It sounds just like a "Crap From The Past" show, only with British music, no CFTP IDs, and a length of 2 hours. It came out pretty good.

Subject: Show cut off at the 57:35 minute mark for me
Great part that I heard though. Wish I could have heard that's what love can do. Nice poppy dance song. But the Scritti Politti was great, and that Danny Wilson song is awesome. I felt, on the strength of that one, they would be big. But, alas, it wasn't to be. Doctorin' The Tards is a direct rip..hope Gary Glitter got some royalties from that one.
